turbo for dd and towing

im about to do injectors and turbo and im wondering what turbo would be best for around 285cc hybrids i want to be able to daily drive and tow with. I pull a mowing trailor every day and a push snow in the winter. I dont know if i will push with the injectors though. what turbo would be best for my set up would a 42r be to big? or should i look into twins?

Re: turbo for dd and towing

GTA4594BN just like mine. It is a little smaller inducer than the 4294 and is a little larger on the ex housing. It is a great dd and towing turbo, I could not be more happy with it.

I have not run the 4294 yet, but I think it may be a little laggy for a tow app.

Bite your tounge! those are fighting words. If it is too laggy, you could alway put a super charger in front of it.

That is what is currently in the works at Empire Diesel Performance with my truck. Putting a Procharger before the 38R.. This is for a tow rig. We will see how it works out here shortly..
